Alticast Adds HTML5 Support to Virtualization Platform
Alticast announced new capabilities for its Apex user experience (UX) virtualization platform that leverage cloud-based rendering to deliver ...
The new Apex functionality is intended to allow pay TV operators to render user interfaces (UIs) and apps on a virtual browser in the cloud and to transmit the images to the client device. The product is designed to support rapid time-to-market, ongoing changes, and upgrades of on-demand interfaces, games, TV shopping, and other applications.
"Delivery of services with maximum efficiency requires a flexible platform that can adapt to differing video requirements," said Joonhee Oh, head of the Cloud Business Division for Alticast. "By adding HTML5 support to Apex, Alticast is creating a highly flexible approach that allows operators dynamically to configure their networks to choose the best possible delivery option - based on video type, time-to-market needs, network capabilities and other factors - at any given time."
